Carrefour to reduce the food wastage by 50% between now and 2025

Boulogne-Billancourt, FRANCE, 2016-Oct-18 — /EPR Retail News/ — Climate issues have an effect on food all over the world, as well as on men’s and women’s health.
Carrefour is well aware of just how important it is to act and has assumed its share of responsibility by announcing ambitious targets at the COP21 conference. One such target is to reduce its CO2 emissions by 40% by 2025.

One of the pillars of the Carrefour group’s CSR policy which is consistent with this target involves tackling all forms of wastage – food wastage first and foremost.

The group’s employees are fully focused on one clear target in all of the countries in which it operates: reduce the amount of wastage by 50% between now and 2025.

World Food Day is an opportunity to reveal the concrete initiatives that people are implementing in each country. It’s also a forum within which examples of best practice can be shared with everyone. We’d like to provide you with an overview of the initiatives being undertaken, what is being done at group level, and collaborative projects with start-ups which are taking up the battle with us.

A l’occasion de la journée mondiale de l’alimentation, Carrefour se mobilise pour révéler les actions concrètes entreprises dans chacun des pays, et pour faire partager les bonnes pratiques à tous nos publics.
